According to Zacks Investment Research, "Visa's shares underperformed the Zacks categorized Financial Transaction Services industry, over the past one year. The company’s first-quarter fiscal 2017 (ended Dec 31, 2016) earnings per share outpaced the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Results were aided by the acquisition of Visa Europe and solid growth in payments volume as well as processed transactions. We remain optimistic as strategic acquisitions and alliances, technology upgrades and effective marketing efforts bode well for long-term growth. For fiscal 2017, Visa expects net revenue growth in the range of 16–18% with an adverse foreign currency impact of 2–2.5%. Adjusted earnings per share is expected to grow at mid-teens digit on normal dollar basis, including 2.5%–3% of negative foreign currency impact. Nevertheless, global economic uncertainty and legal headwinds keep us apprehensive. Moreover, higher client incentives limit profitability." (2/7/2017)
